PARTY’S AFTERMATH

Today–Department parties,

Employees’  pot luck eating hearty…

Taking home

Leftovers warm,

They’ll have it at home “ala cart-ee”.

J.E.C.

NOT MORE THAN TWO OR THREE TIMES!

My wife won’t eat leftovers

More than twice at a time…

And if I try to doctor it up

It could end up as slime.

My wife likes things purer,

I tend toward the mixed…

If I were surer

They’d be less often nixed!

Tonight is Yankee Chop Suey,

Without the onions and pepper…

A burrito as a garnish—

If properly cooked would be better!

HR MEETINGS!

H.R. meetings hold merit

In leftovers to inherit….

“Ziggy” to me slips

A full bowl of chips,

And four diet sodas–they share it!

Was going for some caffeine,

But Diet Coke does the same thing….

Diet root beer

I’ll readily cheer,

So easily happiness springs!

CATCH-AS-CATCH-CAN

What’s for dinner tonight,

A jumble of foods in sight…

Catch-as-catch-can

Leftovers  again,

Enough to fill us up right.

i see four links of sausage,

Graham crackers in a package…

Chunky peanut butter

Naval orange–another-

Wrap up this supper’s forage!

for sausage it’s microwave time,

As long as they’re cooked it’s fine…

Feeling like a dork–

I forgot a fork–

Better planning next time!

LEARNING TO EXPECT THEM!

Leftover food for the guard,

Isn’t a problem too hard…

He can’t expect

A regular collect,

Nor play that “you owe me,”  card!

MY “SISTER” MARY

MY “SISTER” MARY

(a few years ahead of me in school)

Today I thought of Mary,

Who made Methodist time merry…

Her guitar

Made her our star,

‘Though the woman was ordinary.

Like me was milked for what she did,

And after a while she just hid…

No one to care

Beyond her talent there,

Doing as others bid.

I think she left the church,

Being ignored was a besmirch…

Spiritually

Starving like me,

Began her own soul search.

What’s happened I don’t know,

Has she found that God’s Love glow…

Or have some one’s arms

Betrayed her charms

Bringing her life down low?

ALL THE COMFORTS…

ALL THE COMFORTS…

Comfort is on Monday

To find coffee in the pot,,,

It’s just fine when black,

And needn’t be hot.

Security Guards can

Be a happy lot…

Leftovers in the kitchen and

Secure in the job they’ve got!

We are secure in

Being doorkeepers…

In most places,

They can’t get us much cheaper!
